BLJ In-Situ Solutions are pleased to announce their strategic alliance with Boltstress Ultrasonics for a total flange joint management solution for your plant.
Flange joint management is the servicing, supervision and data management of flange joints from breakout, to inspection, repair and bolt-up. Flange joint management is critical to the uninterrupted operation of pressure plant and the long-term integrity of the bolted joint.
BLJ In-Situ Solutions have a long history of managing flange joints and providing the associated site services such as flange tagging, work-pack development, engineering calculations, controlled bolting and on site machining. Now combined with the latest technology for data recording, storage and reporting from Boltsress Ultrasonics, this service will be even more efficient and can be done with a reduced labour requirement.
With initial plant construction, plant shutdowns and plan turnarounds being critical for reliability and getting larger in scale and scope, there is a real and growing need to effectively and efficiently manage flange joint data. Any shutdown with 500+ flange joints to be managed can benefit significantly from an automated data management system. The benefits include efficiency, reduced labour requirement and enhanced data reliability. This adds up to significant cost savings in the order of hundreds of thousands of dollars for a 1000 joints shutdown.
The alliance between BLJ In-Situ Solutions and Boltstress Ultrasonics means all site services can be provided by one company, utilizing the latest technology for flange joint data recording, storage and reporting. The Bolstress technology is designed for accuracy, scalability and user-friendliness. It is equally at home on a small shutdown site with 500 critical flange joints or on a new plant construction covering 10,000 + flange joints. Below are screenshots from the Bolstress system:
